This handsome book features texts and images representing the 2017 Biennial participants, artists who work in a variety of media including painting, sculpture, photography, film, and performance, as well as essays by the two curators, Christopher Y. Lew and Mia Locks, and contributions by each of the advisors including Scott Rothkopf, Negar Azimi, Gean Moreno, Aily Nash, and Wendy Yao. As a record of the artists and ideas presented in this important survey exhibition, this catalogue serves as an essential resource on current trends in contemporary art in the United States.

Since its introduction by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney in 1932, the Whitney Biennial has charted new developments in art and brought emerging artists to light. With a history of exhibiting work by the most promising and influential artists and provoking debate, the Biennial—the Museum’s signature exhibition—is the most important survey of the state of contemporary art in the United States.
